Pumpkin Oatmeal Spice Dog Treat Recipe

Your dog will fall paws over tail in love for these pumpkin treats with a hint of spice!

Is it just me, or is there something about this time of the year that makes people want to bake up a storm? It might be something in the cooler air, or perhaps the fall brings out the baker in me. Either way, this Pumpkin Oatmeal Spice dog treat recipe will satisfy you dog’s tummy in more ways than one. You already know that pumpkin is wonderful for your dog’s digestive system; but did you know that ginger helps ease upset stomachs and is a natural anti-inflammatory, while cinnamon boosts energy, circulation, cognitive function and overall brain health? Add some Honest Kitchen Perfect Form into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a power-packed treat that will have all snuggling in front of the fire with these homemade goodies. I just happened to make these cookies in time for Halloween, and they were a spook-tacular hit with the neighborhood dogs who came by my door!
